anything new but tell you what. washington wants a guy who has done it before. somebody who will walk in the doors here at redskins park and shake things up. the redskins fundamentally believe that mike shanahan is the one who will bring out the best in these players. and lead them to more victories than losses. mike shanahan has two super bowl rings with the denver broncos. he spent two years with the raiders. he now is on the brink of accepting the third head coaching position if redskins owner dan snyder comes to an agreement and does it before another nfl team intercepts the leading prospect. and the redskins have publicly admitted the franchise has taken an aggressive approach to turn the team around after a disappointing season squeezing out over four victories. drawing shanahan in the nation's capital in a private jet triggers a sense of urge ji and talks that -- urgency and talks that must be in works. and bruce allen denied talking about the successor when most knew shanahan was en route to washington. allen did make it clear, they will bring in a true leader. >> we need to f

inquiry commission holds a hearing in washington tomorrow. the new york times calls it this century's equivalent to the investigation in to the 1929 market crash. with me now is jim mctague for barons weekly. what do we make of this inquiry commission? >> well, you know, they compare themselves with the decorum commission that ran from 1931 to 1933 and generated something like 22 to 28,000 pages of testimony. so, whether this will run for years, i don't know. but it would probably take years to get to the true causes of the crisis. i think this is really show business to try to satisfy the vigilante instinct in the public. >> reporter: looking back at history, did that commission give us any definitive answers as to the reasons for the ' 29 crash. >> yes. i just talked to a lawyer in florida, by the way, who's collected all of the testimony and put it on-line. it's not available to the public yet. because of those hearings congress drafted an act which separated banking from securities and kept the banks from gambling on wall street. so in the ' 90s, our policymakers on captiol hill
